Clinical Pathology

The clinical pathology laboratory, also located in the Large Animal Hospital Building, is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. Behind the scenes, our Pathology service supports the diagnosis of disease through laboratory testing of blood and other bodily fluids, tissues and microscopic evaluation of individual cells.  Samples are accepted from 8 AM until 8 PM and all testing is performed by highly trained medical technologists, each with many years of both human and veterinary clinical pathology experience.
